Do you want to know who the owner is of this HORRIBLE restaurant? Rebublican doofus and all around moron Anthony Tola. He's not ONE of the morons who ignorantly poured wine down the drain in opposition of France not wanting to waste trillions in Iraq for a bogus war killing over 250,000 innocent people....HE IS THEE First and stupidest of all the ignorant morons who did this. The news story that went around the world of americans pouring (already paid for to the French btw) high priced wine down the gutter is the guy who owns this dumphole. How do you feel now, owner Anthony Tola? Do you feel lied to and duped? Do you any of the 250,000 innocent lives lost hang on your conscience? Was that guy Sadaam, hiding in a dirt hole with a jug of water really that scary to you? Our economy tanked, unemployment went through the roof and the housing market crashed, ALL tied directly into our 3 trillion dollars lost overseas for a war that meant NOTHING. How does that make you feel? Still a Republican? Do you learn from your mistakes or do you keep repeating them? People like this moron Anthony Tola are the reason our country is where it is today.....blind obedience and trust in complete rebublican dolts. I'm curious how many people go into this restaurant who are not only democrats, but people who have a CONSCIENCE, ....this guy deserves to be run out of the country, just as Bush deserves to be brought up on war crimes. Good job Tola....you seem like a true genius.

I wouldn't eat here if it was the last food on earth.

Very, very nice place. A bit fancy for my taste, and experience, as a Pubcrawler veteran of over 80 locations. If you have a date- it would be better appreciated. As a beer enthusiast, I would take a pass here. The bartender was a good one.

I ahve been coming here since they opened and have never been disappointed! Cajun style food is awesome. Great beer selection and they always have a cask conditioned beer on the pump. Wait staff rarely turns over, so if you go often, they remember you. Get reservations on a Saturday night or during Mardi Gras.

With a tremendous beer selection that offers a full gamut of styles, the Old Bay is one of New Brunswick’s best bars. To make things even better the food is tasty and reasonably priced. Like most places in New Brunswick, the joint can get packed on the weekend making it difficult to get to the bar for a fresh pint.

t This place has to have the best tap beer selection in nj.They recently expanded thier bar and believe it or not,revamped thier menu by lowering the prices.Tin ceilings and festive New Orleans decorations all around,its a fun place to go.The service wheather it be bartender or food server is outstanding.With 20 craft beers on tap including the hard to find and exotic,its a beer paradise.Ive searched many of the places listed in this beer web site and old bay is unmatched.They also hand out a weekly beer menue which is always complete and up to date.Try getting Stickenjab on tap anywhere else!

Always dependable. Have never been disappointed in 10 years of visits. As close to New Orleans as you can get in New Jersey. The Gumbo and the Crawfish Etouffe are unbelievable!!! Worth the trip just for those two dishes alone. Would also recommend the Gator Balls. Beer selection always quality, with some great Belgian and Belgian style brews on tap (and always FRESH). The Rutgers' crowd ensures that kegs turn over fast. Even though it's many miles from my home in Bucks County, I find myself returning regularly for the great Louisiana taste you just can't find elsewhere. Highly recommended.

We are still fans of Old Bay. A few years ago, they would have gotten straight "Awesome" ratings, but they have declined a bit lately. The beer selection is still fantastic...an excellent selection of regional and nationwide micros, with some international selections as well. However, their food (Cajun and Creole) has taken a downturn. Tips for travelers: they used to have "bargain nights" Sundays-Thursdays with 40% off draughts...not sure if they're still doing this or not.

Great beer menu, my only complaint is that as a regular they seem to have the same beers every 3-4 months. Nice cozy bar that can be great on an off night. Food is good but expensive - stick to the appetizers.

The best beer selection in the area, bar none. Service can be slow if you're not ordering food, but overall well worth seeking out if you are a beer nut.

Best place in town. Plenty of selection, both draft and bottle. Attention paid to regional brews, maybe too much. Beer garden is wonderful in the summer, and winter has heaters. Because the bar is nice but small, it gets pretty crowded at times inside.

About 20 draft beers, 40 bottle beers, an interesting selection that includes local microbrews not widely available. Great crawfish dishes during the annual crawfish festival. Typical restaurant prices for beer (just slightly high). Pleasant wait staff.

This used to be my favorite beer bar, a mecca. But a couple of years ago it took a step down in quality of beer selection. They still have great stuff, just not as much. Plus, the off-happy hour prices are a little steep and the food is very expensive. Cool place for jazz or blues on the weekends.

It's a lot like the Harvest Moon, but darker and the beer is not as good. Also, the bar area is very small. The outside beer garden is cool, in the summer. This is a non-college bar in a college town. There are a lot of Johnson and Johnson executives looking for wives and husbands there. Expensive beer.

High prices for both beer and food. Hand pumps recently removed. They do have a solid selection but often out of some beers. At one time this may have been the place to go but now no better than most speciality beer bars. Interesting note - try their peach martini, the best drink in the house (though, like everyting else, no bargain)

This place hosts a really nice mai-bock fest (which was great considering it's not really a "beer" area) The food was good as was the atmosphere; while the selection and quality of the beers offered were excellent.

After travelling from NYC, I was shocked to find that Ramstein Winter Wheat was no longer available at this establishment. This beer is the best weizen dopplebock beer in the world. Aside from the lack of availability of one of my favorite high quality beers (which includes Chimay Grande Reserve, which of course, Old Bay fails to serve as well), Old Bay also serves stale beer. I have had the distinct displeasure of sampling stale Edelweiss and drinking poor quality craft beers at this establishment (see current beer menu).

Wide selection of hard-to-find imported beers and domestic micros with excellent cajun/creole cuisine. Enjoy brews from the hand pump/beer engine. Good times during annual seasonal celebrations such as Mai-Fest and Oktoberfest.
